I remember seeing a Russian animation of this story that did end with the Daughter’s of the Air. It wasn’t her ideal ending BUT she still has a shot at getting a soul. And instead of a knife, the sisters bring her a storm in a konk shell 🐚. I loved this version. Great video !

My mom was always against me watching the little mermaid because she said no man is worth sacrificing yourself for him hahahah. I watched it when I was 15 and even as a teenage girl the story felt kinda dumb for me

Hanz Christian Anderson's version of the Little Mermaid is definitely so much better than the Disney version, as it's so much deeper and richer than anything Disney can do. Sorry Disney.

I'm obsessed with Ariel but now that I know her real story I think I prefer it over the Disney tale.. can you make a Moana video next? also just want to let you know you called Ariel's father Zeus but his name is Trident he's the son of Poseidon

Love the series! Great to have in the background as I work. Can't help rapping Bo Burnham's Rant whenever the credit's come on. It's exciting to watch through the whole playlist to see have you've grown. Currently rewatching on random so I'm up on my dark fables for the kiddies this holiday weekend. >=]

If you had to sign a contract, 1. To be a mermaid A. All of your memories will be gone B. All of your relatives will forget about you C. No one will EVER love you 2. To be a wizard/witch A. Your wand will be the worst wand ever B. You will bot be accepted in the world C. Your family will disown you Which contract would you sign? I would choose wizard/witch

My nan brought my up on the original fairy tales and i do rather your... nitpicking at how Disney really just kinda screwed up by trying to some what stick to the original versions but i do find that they basically give up with that idea bout half way through on a lot of different movies. I also love fables and mythology explained i think what your doing is awesome so keep it up! :D

I'm new and love your series btw. If you haven't as yet watch Shelly Duvall's Fairy Tale Theatre. It's pretty old school but a classic. She follows the true stories more than Disney which I love. I'm only now realising this because of your series. Thanks so much for this content!!
